Bug Buffet Display 22 - Angled from left

This year is the 34th Annual Bug Buffet.  This display explored the use of creepy critters in food concoctions as not only a potential food source option, but looking towards the past and Native American practices that have used these creatures for centuries. A week long celebration with events were offered by the Health and Human Development. Is this an event you would be able to take a bite out of?

Reading ALters Lives close up

The MSU Library is more than just a house for books, it is a home that fosters new ideas and expanding imaginations. This year for our annual Open House the theme of Reading Alters Lives brought about the question of "what book has enriched your life?".  In this Display we explored that idea asked the library employees that very question and were thrilled by the responses, and happily displayed them to share with the public and get the passers by to stop and think about the books they have read and how some simple words on a page has altered their lives.
